I'm not an antique person but I inherited my grandmother's very old Singer sewing machine (which I love). I was looking for a way to spruce up the area the machine is located and to bring my taste and the decor of my house together and this screenprint helped do that. Just need to frame it so I can hang it. Thank you!

About

Colorful Shop of Curiosities

I studied Animal Behavior at the University of Connecticut and upon graduating in 2006 and finding a biotechnologist job, realized that I had chosen the wrong career field. I lasted a measly 3 months at that first job and was soon teaching Beginner Drawing at Artsplace in Cheshire, CT (where my mother is the Director). Eureka!

My husbands' company (oh yeah! I got married in 2007 - yay! ;) then moved us from CT to NJ (to join all the other big pharma's) and I found myself a 25 minute bus ride from NYC. I went in to the city one day with resumes in hand and went to The New School Office of Human Resources (Parsons, The New School for Design was my goal) to find a job and the next day I was interviewing to be a Temp. in The New School for Jazz Admission Office. I was hired on the spot and I worked as hard as I could to prove myself and network and was soon interviewing for a full-time position at Eugene Lang, The New School for Liberal Arts. After being hired, I found out that the Admission Office was going to be moving to 13th Street and Fifth Avenue to share a floor with Parsons Admission Office and we needed to learn about their programs. I filled out the AAS Application the evening I found out about it and what you see in this shop, are all the possibilities that came of that life change...and the resulting garage studio where I spend all of my son's naps. !!! ;)

I sell all different types of art, design (fashion + accessories), photography, and vintage finds from my family's travels!

For anyone who might be wondering, after a particularly heart-wrenching moment in our lives, my husband and I decided that "life was too short" and that it was time to have children. I quit my wonderful job at Lang in 2010, went to school full-time, graduated in May 2011 and had my son Benjamin in April 2012. He is my best creation yet!
